Physical Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership card ?

Hello,
I was wondering if there is a way to obtain an actual Hertz Gold Plus Rewards memebership card ?
I am a 5 Star member and only found the possibility to print my card.

Do President Circle members even receive one ?

Thanks,

I once made the recommendation to the Twitter support team that they should add "view my membership card" functionality to the app. Shockingly, was unable to make the recommendation within the app feedback page due to "connectivity issues." <rolling eyes>

PC and Plat members get plastic cards; mine all go into a drawer or the trash as I have never had the need to produce one.

I've never known any purpose for them other than to make you feel special.

I called Hertz today and one of the CSR told me they are not making physical cards any more.

My girlfriend status match'd from Delta erroneously to PC instead of 5-Star status and received a physical card for PC last month.

She is living proof that you get what you ask for, and she asked for PC via FB chat and sent her Delta GM as backup.

Thanks everyone. I guess I'll have to print my 5 Stars card by myself

Why do you need a printout? When you make bookings and associate the number, the status will be reflected in the booking

The card serves no purpose

Well this is weird, I just got PC status a couple weeks ago, and the email I received clearly states that no card will be sent and invites me to print one from my Hertz account.

Wonder how they choose which members to send a card to ?

give it some time...youll get a welcome packet in the mail with your card in it. TBH, their is no use for the card, except for flexing on your friends/coworkers

I think they stopped doing that.

She got hers last Nov 2018, so maybe it's changed since then.

Not everyone remembers their Hertz Gold number. I find it convenient that it's a very thin card as a printout, It's more convenient to look up my number, if I ever need it for whatever reason, on that card in my wallet than anywhere else, at least for me.

Not everyone always bookings from the same place. For example, those of us using Hertz because of the UA bonuses have to book on the UA website, which doesn't always remember my Hertz number. (And I'm not always booking on the same computer.)

I received mine last year after qualifying. I also received a physical National Executive Elite card when I reached that tier. Only Avis has mailed me a card at the base tier.

National has stopped sending out physical cards towards the end of the last year.
